DISCRETE ANALYSIS JOURNAL | LAUNCH | 03.01.2016

Discrete Analysis is a Mathematical journal that aims to publish articles that are analytical in flavour but that also have an impact on the study of discrete structures .

These include harmonic analysis , ergodic theory , topological dynamics , growth in groups , analytic number theory , additive combinatorics , combinatorial number theory , extremal and probabilistic combinatorics , combinatorial geometry , convexity , metric geometry , and theoretical computer science .

|| DISCRETE ANALYSIS SITE NOW LIVE ||

Just a quick post to note that the arXiv overlay journal Discrete Analysis , managed by Timothy Gowers , has now gone live with its permanent ( and quite modern looking ) website , which is run using the Scholastica platform , as well as the first half-dozen or so accepted papers ( including one of my own ) . See Tim's announcement for more details .

I am one of the editors of this journal ( and am already handling a few submissions ) .

Needless to say , we are happy to take in more submissions ( though they will have to be peer reviewed if they are to be accepted , of course ) .

|| DISCRETE ANALYSIS — AN ARXIV OVERLAY JOURNAL ||

This post is to announce the start of a new Mathematics journal , to be called Discrete Analysis .

While in most respects it will be just like any other journal , it will be unusual in one important way : it will be purely an arXiv overlay journal . . .

Part of the motivation for starting the journal is , of course , to challenge existing models of academic publishing and to contribute in a small way to creating an alternative and much cheaper system . . .

The members of the editorial board all have an interest in additive combinatorics , but they also have other interests that may be only loosely related to additive combinatorics . . .

Some of the subjects we will welcome in the journal are harmonic analysis , ergodic theory , topological dynamics , growth in groups , analytic number theory , combinatorial number theory , extremal combinatorics , probabilistic combinatorics , combinatorial geometry , convexity , metric geometry , and the more Mathematical side of theoretical computer science .

The phrase " discrete analysis " was coined by Ben Green when wanting a suitable name for a seminar in Cambridge : despite its oxymoronic feel , it is in fact a good description of many parts of Mathematics where the structures being studied are discrete , but the tools are analytical in character .

|| THIS RENOWNED MATHEMATICIAN IS BENT ON PROVING ACADEMIC JOURNALS CAN COST NOTHING ||

This week , Timothy Gowers debuted a new online Mathematics journal called Discrete Analysis . The nonprofit venture is owned and published by a team of scholars . With no publisher intermediary , access will be completely free for all .

Gowers is betting traditional journals do not add value , particularly when it comes to papers that are mostly Math .

" We do not need all the services journals provide — like formatting in a journal house style and copy-editing — because the pre-prints are good enough already , and there are lots of examples where copy-editing makes articles worse and introduces mistakes . "

|| LAUNCH OF DISCRETE ANALYSIS MARKS NEW ERA FOR OA JOURNAL PUBLISHING ||

Fields Medal-winning Cambridge Mathematician Timothy Gowers and a team of distinguished colleagues are paving the way for editor-owned Open Access ( OA ) journals with the help of Scholastica .

Making academic journal articles free to read and quick to access — that is the mission of the growing open access movement . Cambridge Mathematician Timothy Gowers and a team of colleagues are leading the charge with today's official launch of the game-changing OA journal Discrete Analysis .

The journal will be owned by its editors , rather than a publisher intermediary , and will follow the " diamond OA model " , meaning it will be free to read and publish in .

We sat down with Gowers to learn more about Discrete Analysis , which will be peer-reviewed and published via Scholastica , and to discuss Gower's vision for the future of editor-owned journals .

ARXIV | WIKIPEDIA

The arXiv is a repository of electronic preprints , known as e-prints , of scientific papers in the fields of Mathematics , Physics , Astronomy , Computer Science , Quantitative Biology , Statistics , and Quantitative Finance , which can be accessed online .

In many fields of Mathematics and Physics , almost all scientific papers are self-archived on the arXiv .
